Health Insurance

All participants are required to have health insurance that is written by a U.S.-based company. Short-term health insurance is offered by many U.S. companies such as CampDoc and is needed to pay for any medical attention participants may need. You can purchase coverage directly through your CampDoc account by clicking on the "Protection Plan" link after signing in.

While travel insurance may assist participants with travel costs in the event of an emergency, it will not satisfy Duke Summer Session’s medical insurance requirement, as many policies do not cover medical bills. Participants will be required to submit proof of U.S.-based health insurance prior to their arrival to campus.
